Productive blogging (yes, really!)

In Confluence, blogs are a useful format when there’s timely information to share widely. And unlike your knowledge base pages, a blog page intended to be accurate for one-time announcements but isn’t expected to be updated.

Create a Confluence blog

The key difference from other types of pages is that a blog post is organized chronologically, while other pages live in a hierarchical tree. 

Follow along

  1. To write a blog post in a space, you should be an admin or have permission to create blogs. In these spaces, you’ll see Blog in the left sidebar. Click + to start a new post.
  2. Add a blog post title, and get writing right away!
  3. Spruce up your blog with charts, emojis, and smart links, or funny cat videos with our widget connector macro

What goes into an internal blog? Any and all work-related matters you see fit to share.

Pro Tip

You can also create a blog using the Create button in the top navigation bar and using a blog post template.

Convert a page into a blog

You can publish any page as a blog while editing, or convert a page into a blog even after it’s published.

  • In edit mode, click the More actions button (three dots icon) in the top-right corner and select “Publish as blog.
  • On a published page, click the More actions button in the top-right corner and select “Convert to blog.

Pages will transform without losing any existing likes or comments.
